Cover Story: Mattel’s new Hot Wheels Commemoratives line celebrating the 4-billionth Hot Wheels car. TCM takes you to the unveiling in New York of the specially commissioned, diamond-covered Redline car that commemorates the release of the 4-billionth Hot Wheels car. Reporter Chuck Miller speaks to Hot Wheels supercollectors, a Mattel designer, and even Jason of Beverly Hills, the jeweler to the stars whose team undertook the project of decorating the $140,000 Hot Wheels diamond car. What will become of the high-priced bling-rod? It’s headed to auction – read about it in this article.

Looking back in time, Alan Jaffe explores the wonderful designs of turn of the 20th-century train stations, by Marklin, Ives and other prestigious makers of that era. Find out which train station holds the world record for highest auction price ever and view a big, colorful picture of it.

Also in the March issue, read about the history of Wyandotte toys – they owe their existence to scrap metal from the Detroit automotive industry – plus farm toys, colorful tin gameboards of the 1940s-1960s, and toy airplanes based on America’s mammoth postwar atomic bomber, the B-36.
